Daria Kasatkina hilariously reacted with the huh cat meme to a stat showing that Iga Swiatek by a wide margin had the most bagel and breadstick sets in 2023. This year, Swiatek combined for 54 sets won with a 6-0 or a 6-1 scoreline.

The next on the list is Jessica Pegula, who had a combined 26 bagels and breadsticks. Kasatkina, ranked at No 18 in the world, is also on the list with a combined 16 bagels and breadsticks in 2023.

This year, Swiatek became the first player to have 20 bagel sets in consecutive seasons since Steffi Graf and Monica Seles in 1991 and 1992.

After finishing with 22 bagel sets last year, Swiatek had 23 bagel sets this year. In May, Swiatek attempted to downplay the importance of her bagel sets. "I don't really think about that [finishing sets 6-0]. It's more I feel the media is doing all that fuss about these results.

It's not easy to play these sets anyway, so I'm just trying to keep my focus on what the score is. With all my due respect to my opponents, I don't feel like I should really talk about that kind of stuff, so I'll leave it to Twitter or the media," Swiatek said at the start of the French Open.

When asked by the popular Iga Swiatek bakery meme, the Pole acknowledged that's probably something funny to fans but highlighted she wants to keep it respectful toward her rivals. "Look, I don't want to really talk about that.

I really get why people do that because it's fun and tennis is entertainment and everything. But from the players' point of view, I want to be respectful to my opponents. You don't see the stuff that is behind the scenes - sometimes it's not easy to play such matches and sometimes it's not easy also for the opponents.

I don't want to talk about the bakery. Twitter can talk about it, but I'm just going to be focused on tennis," Swiatek said after beating Wang Xinyu 6-0 6-0 at the French Open.
